“Always known as one of the area’s best lyricists, with an ability to get right inside the heart of her characters and listeners, Martin has translated that emotion in a bigger rock sound.” – Bob Mersereau, CBC

Nova Scotia Singer-Songwriter Christina Martin’s musical journey has led to extended stays in Austin, Texas, as well as Germany, from where she has cultivated a substantial following across mainland Europe. Along the way, she has earned multiple East Coast and Music Nova Scotia Awards, had songs featured in television soundtracks, performed at Rolling Stone Weekender Festival in Germany, and for the Queen at Parliament Hill in Ottawa.

Christina will perform songs from her most recent release It’ll Be Alright, which won Pop Recording of the Year at the 2016 East Coast Music Awards. She will be accompanied by her guitar player, acclaimed Nova Scotia producer and musician, Dale Murray.

‘It’ll Be Alright,’ is Christina’s most accomplished and accessible album to date. Martin made a conscious effort not to be bound by the expectations of those who have categorized her in the past. Although she will never shed her more alt-country and Americana influences, ‘It’ll Be Alright’ utilizes far more pop and rock sonic textures, allowing Martin to explore the many sides of her musical personality.

“Worldly perspective has informed her new album, and it might be just the thing she needs to take her to the next level of great Canadian legendary singer-songwriters.”- Tom Power, CBC

“Rootsy East Coast songstress Christina Martin delivers another winner with her fifth album, It’ll Be Alright.” Kerry Doole, New Canadian Music

Symptomatic Presents: The Tourists + Nick Alsam + High Fever + Playing House


Tickets - £6adv

A blend of intricate guitar melodies, curvy art-funk bass lines and 80’s

synth leads, Tourists encapsulate modern post-punk revivalism with a

melodic, psychedelic spin.

The writing process began in 2012 when founding members Jamie Giles

(vocals/guitar), Scott Morton (drums) and Matthew White (bass) acquired

some basic recording equipment and produced the debut EP Fear Grows. The

lo-fi record – produced at home by Morton – was by no means perfect in

sound quality but succeeded in capturing an identity, one that still

resonates through the band’s sound today.

2013 saw the release of second EP Hidden Desires with label In At The Eye

Records. Singles from the EP We’ll Talk About It and Background became

instant hits, drawing praise from the likes of Janice Long (Radio 2) and

XFM. Soon after, Tourists were invited into the BBC Introducing in Devon

studio, becoming the first band to play a full set live on air.

After a quiet transitional year in the shadows and with the addition of

new members Lloyd Bastow (guitar) and Tom Wilkinson (synthesizer),

Tourists re-emerged in 2015 looking set to build on the success of

previous years. Latest single All We Do Is Pretend soon caught the eye of

key taste-makers CLASH, NOTION, The 405, A Music Blog Yeah and Inveterate,

with the band being tipped as ‘ones to watch’ on Huw Stephens’ BBC

Radio 1 show.

This year the band have been busy recording with producer James Bragg at

Middle Farm Studios in Devon and look set to release new single Cut and

Run this spring.


“The band’s forthcoming release All We Do Is Pretend has already seen

significant support from the likes of CLASH and The 405, with the band

tipped by XFM, BBC Radio 2 and BBC Introducing as ones to watch”


“A lush return, the jagged guitar lines are matched against gossamer

synths and vocals that betray a pop ambition” CLASH

Bird on The Wire Presents: Little Scream


Tickets - £7.50adv

When Laurel Sprengelmeyer began performing as Little Scream in 2008, she played her first shows in Montreal using only a battered Stratotone guitar, a cigarette amp, and a mic on the floor so her feet could serve as percussion. “That’s why I always wore high heels. They made the best stomping sounds.” Her debut LP, The Golden Record, was released in 2011, with Pitchfork calling it “a perfectly mixed bag of graceful folk, coiled pop, and expansive art rock” and NPR dubbing the record “absolutely captivating.” If that album was Little Scream’s searching, enchanting first step into the world, then this May’s release, Cult Following, is the badass landmark cementing her place there.

She began conceiving of Cult Following while visiting a friend in a small intentional community in northern Brazil that was on the verge of becoming a cult. The experience laid the groundwork for the album to flourish into a lush, expansive, retro-leaning gem that straddles intimate fragility with bombastic dancefloor-ready songs. Listening to it is like reading an epic novella—part fairy tale, part ecstasy, and part human folly. The album drops on Merge Records on May 8th.

SJM Concerts Presents: Prose



Manchester has a righteous tradition of insisting on being the UK musical capital. But even the most swaggering evangelist for the city would have to admit that the old place has been a bit quiet lately. So with the poise of anybody worthy of claiming the keys to the city, all of that's about to change.

Meet PROSE, organic-acoustic-hip-hop three-piece who are coming for your soul. From the mean(ish) streets of Stretford, via a yellow brick road of sweat, struggle, melody and pummelling beats. They've got very big hearts, but you probably wouldn't like them when they're angry.

PROSE defy genre because in the fiercest way, they are a genre of their own. They take the best of what has come before in the city; the emotional eloquence of Oasis; the street poetry of John Cooper Clarke; the psychedelic ambition of The Stone Roses and the spirit of when New Order looted the NYC gay clubs of the early 80s and invented dance music as we know it. For good measure, they'll also namecheck Tupac, Hendrix, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Alanis Morrissette, Nirvana and Queen. Seabright Arms - SJM Concerts Presents: Prose

George Pelham is a 22 year old singer/songwriter from London and his sound has been called "RnB-infused-pop" with influences from Justin Timberlake to Jamie Woon.

Gemma tells stories. The Mil Men play music. Together they are Gemma Rogers & The Mil Men

One Formation Album Launch + Peter Levics


Tickets - £5adv

UK Artist & Producer Matt Fleming, who goes by the name of One Formation, is set to release his self-titled debut album on the 15th of July.

After running a successful crowdfunding campaign, Matt received the funds to press his debut album to double disc heavy weighted vinyl.

Inspired by the beautiful textures of Icelandic bands, the unconforming rhythms of experimental electronic music, and the overwhelming emotion portrayed in instrumental post-rock, Matt established One Formation in 2011. As an alternative to creating a new alias when trying something different, One Formation is a genre-less canvas encompassing all under one roof.

Matt is performing a one off show on the release date with a 4 piece band and some special guests to recreate the diverse eleven tracks from the debut album live.

Peter Levics, an instrumental duo combining classical and folk elements with alternative/indie will open up the show. Seabright Arms - One Formation Album Launch + Peter Levics

Early Doors Disco presents Randolph’s Leap + Special Guests


Tickets - £8adv / £10 door

The band released their debut album ‘Clumsy Knot’ in April 2014 and garnered much critical praise:

“Masters of melody… lo-fi indie-pop gems” – The Metro

“The next generation of witty Scottish indie pop” – The Quietus

“the Jonathan Richman of Scottish indie” – The Herald

They are known for their prolific recording habits and, prior to Clumsy Knot, released a number of EPs and homespun albums over the last few years. May 2016 sees the band release their second album – Cowardly Deeds - a joyous collection of new tunes that perfectly captures the thrill of the band's live performance.

The album captures the dynamic and exuberant on-stage atmosphere that the band have become well known for. This is Randolph’s Leap’s most collaborative offering so far, showcasing the strengths and personality of the 8 musicians as well as Adam’s songwriting.

The band has won over many new fans thanks to their festival appearances at T in the Park, Celtic Connections, Wickerman and Green Man. The band featured in the BlogSound of 2013 and have recorded two sessions for Marc Riley’s 6Music show. In Feb 2013 the octet played their biggest gig to date when they headlined the Queen’s Hall in Edinburgh

Bugeye + Glue + Special Guests

Doors - 7.30pm

Tickets - £4 on the door


If Debbie Harry, Jimi Hendrix, Kate Bush, & Keith Moon had been kidnapped by vegan aliens & bred, sometimes being tortured with hot poky things, in the pursuit of the ultimate rock & roll sound, the result may have sounded a little like this. Blending cherry-liqueur lyrics, bubblegum-kneecap bass electrics, goth-heavy drum compactions & hi-rise guitar sculptures, maybe one day all music will sound this good. But for now Bugeye stand alone.


Glue is a grungy electro punk rock band based in West Ham, London. They recently released their debut EP, Balloon. Their songs cover themes of escape, resistance, alienation, hope, love and self-determination. Musically it incorporates shades of college rock, techno, art punk, folk and grunge, bearing similarities to bands like Pavement, Weezer, Nirvana, British Sea Power, Fugazi and Blur.

Kilimanjaro Live Presents: Matthew Logan Vasquez


Tickets - £12adv

2015 (The Year of The Ram) has been a year of major change for Matthew Logan Vasquez. He moved with his wife, Marthe, from Brooklyn to Austin, he saw the birth of his first child Thor, and after a decade since founding his critically acclaimed band, Delta Spirit, he’s finally decided to go it alone FOR THE FIRST TIME, with his solo debut, The Austin EP, to be released November, 2015 , and a full length LP, Solicitor Returns, to shortly follow in early 2016. This seachange is reflected on the EP’s stunning psych-folk-rock opener, a ballsy 18-minute track (yes EIGHTEEN minutes) that conjures desert visions of Crazy Horse guitar solos, David Crosby’s mustache, and all the good things about a journey through the past on mescaline. Matt actually grew up in Austin (and Dana Point, CA too) and the song is a slice of his life--an autobiography that isn’t even close to being finished-- an epic American saga that reflects his skill as a remarkable modern songwriter still on the rise. If Richard Linklater could write a song, this would be it. Seabright Arms - Kilimanjaro Live Presents: Matthew Logan Vasquez
